The School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol invites applications for one or more Research Fellowships in association with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research. Research fellows divide their time equally between their own research and the research programme of the Heilbronn Institute, which offers opportunities to engage in collaborative work as well as individual projects.
Research areas of interest include but are not restricted to Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics, Computational Statistics, Data Science, Number Theory, Probability, and Quantum Information. These areas are interpreted broadly: Fellows have previously been appointed with backgrounds in most areas of Pure Mathematics and Statistics, and in several areas of Mathematical/Theoretical Physics.
For more information about the Heilbronn Institute, see http://heilbronn.ac.uk
Due to the nature of the Heilbronn Institute's work, you must satisfy vetting before appointment. UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Heilbronn Manager (see below) about their eligibility before applying. You may become a member of the USS pension scheme.
There is a salary supplement of £3.5K pa, in recognition of the distinctive nature of these Fellowships. Payment of this supplement is conditional on a finished thesis having been accepted in final form, because we expect Heilbronn Fellows to hold PhDs before working at the Heilbronn Institute. In addition, a fund of at least £2,000 per annum to pay for research expenses will be available to each Fellow.
The Fellowship will be for three years, with a preferred start date in October 2018, though another date may be possible by prior agreement.
The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women’s careers in mathematics and we particularly welcome applications from women for this post. Candidates interested in learning more about the working environment at the Institute prior to application are welcome to contact the Associate Chair, Dr Julia Wolf, at firstname.lastname@example.org

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
